Quinoa Veggie Sushi

I could eat this everyday!


Rice doesn’t make a regular appearance in our home but quinoa certainly does!

We’ve made sushi before using just quinoa and avocado… we thought we’d step it up a notch today.

The quinoa was made a day ahead…makes it a little easier to work with.

We typically make a big batch and use it throughout the week in different recipes.

Lay out your raw nori sheets and start assembling.

Options are endless.

Today we used quinoa and mixed it with a bit of ‘Dastony’ tahini. The tahini helps to keep the beautiful little grain together.  We added  grated carrot, grated mushroom, thinly sliced red pepper and some beautiful local swiss chard.

Have a little water bowl next to you… wet your fingers and the ‘exposed’ seaweed and gently wrap and roll it as tight as you can.

We’ve found that a  bread knife, or something similar, works best for cutting the sushi into pieces.

Dip your pieces into a little bit of *coconut aminos with a bit of grated garlic in it!!!


Happy, healthy eating y’all.
